A Sleep Apnea Appliance Helps Patients Get Healthy Sleep in Boyertown, PA

by | Jun 8, 2016 | Dentist

Many people are suffering from a malady called sleep apnea that causes people to be irritable in the mornings, have no energy, feel sleepy all day, and suffer from headaches. It’s often overlooked at the doctor’s office during regular checkups until a patient mentions they’re tired all the time, and they don’t know why. Patients think they’re sleeping the night away when, very often, they actually stop breathing, which causes a loss of oxygen to the body. It’s no wonder they’re miserable during the day. Their doctor schedules them for a night in the hospital where their sleep and breathing is monitored to find out if they have sleep apnea and what kind it is.

Once sleep apnea is diagnosed, a treatment is advised. A device that administers continued positive airway pressure, also called (CPAP), is worn by the patient to ensure their airway is open to receive the oxygen they need, which enables them to sleep throughout the night.

The problem is that many people just can’t stand to wear something over their face and attached to a machine when they’re trying to sleep. Many can’t take the noise it makes and, in the end, they don’t, or won’t wear it. This causes stress and the same tired feeling each day, plus they’re not getting the proper oxygen to the body.
